Margaritas are great, there’s a very good reason that they’re so popular – it’s a simple and delicious formula that will always be a good choice. But, why not shake things up a little (literally), and swap out your margarita this Cinco de Mayo for an amazing tequila cocktail that is just as easy and delicious, but a little bit different.

Have you tried pisco before?  If you haven’t, you need to mix up this pisco sour recipe variation ASAP so you can fall in love with it. If you have, no doubt you’re already in love with pisco, so you should also definitely mix up this cocktail as soon as you can! Pisco is a grape brandy and can only be made in either Peru or Chile (both strongly claim it belongs to them, and most pisco lovers have a preference. It can become quite a heated topic so I shall leave it at that!). Pisco has a smooth taste with hints of grape and apple, it also has a light herbal earthiness to it that I would liken to tequila – however Pisco is definitely unique and any comparison to another spirit will certainly fail.
